The 7-acre Myers Property site is a former pesticide and industrial chemical manufacturing facility in Franklin Township, Hunterdon County, New Jersey. The site lies adjacent to, and in the 100-year floodplain of the Cakepoulin Creek which flows to the north of the site. The site is comprised of adjourning private lands, two acres of wetlands, and five acres of residential property with onsite residents. In 1978, State investigations identified 20 unlabeled drums of chemicals containing metals, DDT, other organic chemicals in a shed, and 24 cubic yards of asbestos material in an onsite warehouse. In addition, surface soil and debris were found to be contaminated with high levels of DDT, other organics, and metals. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses the first of two operable units, and includes remediation of the soil, sediment, buildings, and shallow ground water aquifer. The ROD also addresses interim remedial activities for the second operable unit, the ground water in the bedrock aquifer, which will be fully addressed in a future ROD. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, debris, and ground water are VOCs including benzene; other organics including PCBs, PAHs, dioxin, and pesticides such as DDT; and metals including arsenic, and lead.
